Subterra - The Unearthing

Get ready - this is one of those rare wine events you'll be talking about for years to come. Like a modern-day treasure hunt, this special gathering of Wine Club members at the Gemtree Wines burial site on 19th February 2022 will witness the unearthing of the sixth vintage of Subterra, followed by a samping straight from the barrel. 

Since vintage, the 2021 Subterra has been aging in a single barrel buried in the earth under the vines. A wine truly made in the vineyard. A flavoursome native tasting plate will accompany this exclusive tasting and all attendees will receive a signed gift boxed bottle of the 2021 Subterra (valued at $260) as soon as they are bottled. 

After the barrel tasting, join Senior Cultural Custodian Karl Winda Telfer on Tirkandi - a walk and talk through country that brings the ancient living culture of place alive. All things are connected, plant, animal, insect and earth and Karl's knowledge and wisdom will plant new seeds of understanding, connection, culture and the living landscape. 

The day then continues with a visit to the winery to take an inside look and participate in the crucial decisions of a winemaker, where you will be a part of the 2021 vintage Gemtree Biodynamic Icons classification. Here, winemakers Mike and Josh will taste with you the most premium Shiraz blends from the Gemtree 2021 vintage. During this tasting you will be part of the team that makes the decision on what blends will make up Gemtree’s 2021 Ernest Allan and the Obsidian. 

After all that winemaking “work” you will need lunch and a glass or two of wine! Your unearthing experience concludes with the Gemtree Family lunch where the table will be adorned with succulent meats and vegetables and delights from the native garden alongside bottles of our finest wines. Relax for the rest of the afternoon, hosted by Melissa and Mike Brown, and reflect on the remarkable experiences shared throughout the day.
